Interesting drive up through the "high rent district" and the Cross is much taller than can be imagined from afar... The view of the whole of Acapulco Bay is without a doubt spectacular.. The history behind the monument and the architecture is worth the visit...

Went here with family on a private day tour from a cruise ship. The chapel was very quiet, serene and has a sad story about why it was built. The views from the chapel over Acapulco were amazing and it is worth going here for pictures.The toilets at the chapel were really dirty/ a mess and we were charged $1... More

We visited this place whilst on our tour with Roger Dodger of Rudy's Tours (an excellent tour company). A very touching and interesting modern story of love and devotion goes along with chapel and coupled with an excellent view it makes for a touching visit.

The death of two sons brings about an Acapulco memorial. The Chapel built by a family to honor a pledge to God is now maintained by the city of Acapulco. For a fee, many are enshrined there. Great views and a very lovely place. Church services are held there each Sunday

Beginning with the truly sad story of the wife in a wealthy family of Acapulco, who owned the entire mountain retreat where the Chapel de la Paz was eventually built to make it easier for her to go to Church, which she reportedly did daily. The death of her two boys..wow. Excellent story and the views are remarkable. the Cross... More

A beautiful setting and view of the city and bay. A spectacular chapel built by a private person for his wife and later donated to the public as a non denominational chapel where services are still held.
